Re: Java Updates Different...Why?
It's just Larry Ellison's way of trying to monetize the "free" software (and support headache) that came along with his purchase of Sun.

This is why I never ever, unless there's NO choice, download stub installers. That's why they exist--to download and install (sometimes without asking) crapware.
Always download full ("offline") installers. The links to these are often posted here. Do NOT use the standard links (to stub installers)--unless of course you like crapware.
Don't feed trolls--it only makes them grow!
I use the Ninite installer for Java. It downloads the full installer and completely automates the installation process and makes sure that any included foistware isn't installed.
